Coal Seeds

I buried my heart today
I stood beside the mound of earth
I'd tirelessly dug away
I don't think I dug deep enough
So I dig a deeper grave

So there my heart will lie
Motionless, consumed with hurt
Loaded with the tears I'd cried
Now suppressed with fresh-dug dirt
Not even worth a last goodbye

How deep it lays, can't be measured
Compacted into Earth's tenebrous core
To suffocate beneath the pressure
Perhaps becoming useful once more
Coals will be diamonds, my heart will be precious
